Several times a year, I make circuits where I work for various people and institutions and sometimes deliver and pick up instruments. Early August I traveled 3142 miles over two weeks, with stops outside Philadelphia, PA, Aiken, SC, delivered a new AMD Le Cadet harpsichord near Asheville, NC, Sumter SC, Savannah, GA, Davie, FL, Miami and Miami Beach, FL, Palm Beach, FL, Athens, GA, and more I can’t remember right now. A highlight was working at La Merced, a fabulous new reconstruction of a Spanish baroque chapel in North Miami, preparing a newly acquired harpsichord for a concert in September.
Working in Seattle for several clients on 19th century pianos, including an 1875 Erard, an 1860 Pleyel and others.
On Saturday, October 8th, I hosted an all day workshop for members of the Savannah-Charleston chapters of the Piano Technicians Guild. Members were able to up close study and discuss a circa 1800 Broadwood square, harpsichord stringing issues, making hitchpin loops and stringing using hole-less tuning pins, and studied a late 19th century Chickering upright piano action.
